According to recent reports Danny Philbin, son of Regis Philbin, is in need of some financial aid. Things have gotten so bad, that Judy Philbin, Dannyâ€™s wife, has gone to the National Enquirer for some help. According to her, Danny is too proud to ask for help.
Danny Philbin was born to Regis Philbin and his first wife, Kay Faylan. Danny was born with missing vertebrae and was missing some muscles in his leg, and spent some time at the Angel View Crippled Children’s Foundation in California. The Spinal cord defect has left Danny wheelchair bound and, has required his legs to be amputated. During the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Regis expressed is concern for his son because her worked at The Pentagon. Danny safely made it out of the attacks and since he and his father have visited injured troops at the Walter Reed Hospital.
According to what Dannyâ€™s wife Judy told the Enquirer, he has quit his job at the Pentagon, and is now having trouble paying bills.
â€œOur finances have gotten so bad we had to file for debt consolidation, and we barely have enough money to eat. Sometimes we have to borrow money from friends to buy food! To make ends meet, Danny has taken odd jobs. He worked for a while at a bookstore and more recently; heâ€™s been working 12-hour days making decorated light switch covers to sell at weekend craft fairs. But at this point, we donâ€™t even have enough money to pay the $70 fee for a booth at a craft fair!â€?
Regis has not commented on the situation.
